Unlike the last time I worked with Everlane, this time I’m not new to the brand. I’ve tried and tested quite a few of their pieces now, and I can tell you, I’m loving their take on the timeless classics. I’m also loving that it’s a different brand from my usual go-tos – it feels like a nice little ‘refresh’ (because let’s face it, basics of some description are my most worn pieces these days…).
Slouchy sweaters, well cut jeans, boyish cotton shirts, slub linen teas, boots and ballet pumps – all my favourite things under one roof. I also really love the imagery and the styling, which always makes me love a brand that little bit more. I just feel like they have really nailed how we want to dress (and feel) during these crazy times. Basics, but more than that. And put together/styled in a way that doesn’t make you feel like you’ve gone to seed! A key element to this is the mostly neutral colour palette – everything works together. These are my kind of basics.
One thing I think they do particularly brilliantly is blazers/mannish jackets, which you know I’m a big fan of. Great cuts and weights (not too bulky – very important). I’m still wearing all my blazers in lockdown – they’re so perfect for throwing over your scruffier outfits to pop to the shops – the difference between having to hide from people you know or saying hello! I’ve got this one, and I have to say, I absolutely love it (and it will be great to carry through to Spring too, as it’s pretty lightweight). The key to a great jacket for me, is that it has an overall boyish style/feel, but is still cut for a woman’s body, even if the fit is designed to be oversized. I love it with jeans or over jumpsuits (particular with heels – that’s actually one of my favourite ‘out out’ looks, so looking forward to wearing it again some day…).
ps: I so need these right now to navigate the slush here in post-snow London…
pps: I never thought I’d be a plimsoles girl (I always found them too preppy for my style), but these ones have a great slightly 70’s tomboy vibe that I’m really into. As I said in my last post, they would look so fab with a slouchy trouser suit, but for now I’m wearing mine with jeans and jumpsuits.
ppps: now you probably already know that I don’t own a puffa But if I were to take the plunge (particularly if more snow is coming), I must admit that the idea of one filled with ‘100% recycled high-performance Primaloft insulation does sounds VERY appealing.
pppps: look – they even do great face masks!
